In the spirit of celebrating accomplishment, we hope you will take the time to nominate a classmate (or yourself) for one of the graduation honors bestowed during the GPH ceremony. At the 2017 GPH graduation ceremony students, one undergraduate and one graduate, will be recognized in the following areas:

  • Research

  • Service & Leadership

  • Social Justice

In addition to the awards given in the categories above, one student will also be selected from each academic level to offer remarks during the ceremony. The students selected to serve as Student Speakers should embody the spirit of their class and demonstrate excellent potential for work in public health.

 Finally, members of the graduating class are also asked to nominate a CGPH faculty member to be recognized during the ceremony. The recipient of the Faculty Award should be someone who demonstrates teaching excellence and care for GPH students.

Please utilize this Nomination Form to nominate yourself, your classmates and faculty members for one or more of these graduation honors. Again, self-nominations are welcome.

=> Please note that a faculty reference is required for student awards. Please provide the name of the faculty member who we may contact to endorse the nomination you are submitting in the nomination form.
